Britney Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph has represented the star for 25 years, and has now made the decision to step down.
Revealed in a letter written to Spears’ father, Jamie, and lawyer Jodi Montgomery (co-executor of Britney’s estate), Larry cites Spears’ “intention to officially retire” as his reason for resigning.
Deadline was first to publish the official letter, with Variety confirming its authenticity.
“I have never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details,” Rudolph wrote, who also mentioned that he hasn’t communicated with Britney in over two-and-a-half years.
“I was originally hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist her with her career. And as her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.”
